Sally great hatch, waiting on  serama //// eggs from sara and martha set 1/24  day 7 legbar, projects, marans, Lemon Cuckoo orphingtons, tolbunt polish, and some mix silkies
NestingHillsSC 14 eggs in the hatcher yesterday2/4. I have another 18 I have to stagger in tomorrow morning. Wheaten Ameraucanas and BCMs. Probably Barred Rocks, Buff Brahmas, Heritage Reds and Sex links. LOL
J&TRanch 1/12/16  12 self blue Cochin bantams (shipped) day 3 (going to candle today to see how many are viable).... And 18 eggs arriving in the mail tomorrow @J&Tranch  My shipped self blue bantam Cochins are doing good. I had to throw out a stinker and a seeper 😟 So out of those 10 remaining, 7 are developing nicely 😀 They're on day 7.  I ended up receiving 16 shipped from GA, they looked good considering the single digit temps- only 3 saddles and none cracked. They're on day 3 today, will candle Wednesday maybe. 
Saris My hatch is done 6 DIS 24 chicks outonly had to help one out of the shell when it got stuck zipping. Hooray!
TJ The original two surviving Serama eggs from the shipped mushy mess have bit the dust. From the newer shipped mess there are two still developing. They do have horrible saddle cells, so not a lot of hope for them either. My purple Guineas have just started laying and people are wanting chicks, so.....Pulling out the Mind Reading Bator this weekend!
Casportsponyday 34 for the Muscovy eggs and it looks like I have one external pip, two internals. One of the eggs have a huge "bruise" at the bottom of the shell, so I doubt it's still alive.
LocalYokel 13 Dominicker   5 Leghorn, may be White or Brown, mostly Whites in that coop.(Not the cheery oldish dude Whites)  Hope the Doms and Leghorns are fertile.
7 RIR 2 out of 3 eggs under broody bator are alive/developing, 1 RIR 1 Leghorn, tossed the other.
4 out of 5 Leghorn in bator showing veins!
Some of the RIR look porous.
Hard to tell on the Dom eggs because my flashlight batteries are low, But I can see some developing.
Got a better cage for the broody!
Canadachickens  Just set 18 Auracana  Four silkie eggs - 1 Malpoed DIS, 3 late quitters. 0 hatch.
Venymae    @venymae
got an update? hope your ok!  Salmon Favorelles and 11 shipped Cochin eggs on 1/15.  On day 8, only 4 of the Favorelles looked good, but 8 of the Cochins did -- I left them all in the 'bator.   I added 10 of my own silkies on 1/23. 
gotro17 Shellee lavender Orpington shipped egg issue,Papa's Poultry. Jeff- you rocked it! Not one crack! Thank you!!! We have Bielefelders, Crested CL, BBs Marans and Mottled Lavender Orpingtons, along with some surprises from the rainbow pen! Can't wait!!!5 Marans eggs were cracked 👎. However, all frizzles and lavender Orpingtons were intact. Vital Farms eggs I got at Target, along with some silkies from our new friend from down the road, @Jessimom... We are setting tomorrow for a Feb. 6th hatch day.  29 eggs go into lockdown tomorrow!!! Start honing your master Jedi skills of distraction and calm.

Hawk12 have 7 blue/gold partridge brahma chicks in the incubator on day 15. Candled last night and things look pretty good. Air cells might be a little small. I lost 5 from this hatch due to a temp spike on day 3 sad.png I emailed the gal I bought them from to let her know my progress and she sent me a dozen more for the cost of shipping. That was very sweet of her to do knowing it wasn't her fault or even the PO but my faulty incubator. I'll be setting those eggs tomorrowDay 15, 7 eggs.
deserteggs22Update on my eggs in the incubator on day 7: all 7 of the eggs have moving babies in them!!! YAY! I will do another update on day 14. @deserteggs22

Fire Ant Farm I set 16 Cream Legbar eggs yesterday afternoon. Looks like the shipped eggs (Alohas with some Naked Necks in the mix) will come next week, so the tandem hatches will be a week apart. (Brinsea Octagon), and the second one will be set up tonight (R-Com 20). Cream Legbars lock down on February 7. Aloha NNs lock down on February 16 (at least any that make it to lock down). Gently turning those three times a day now.

Hawk12 have 7 blue/gold partridge brahma chicks in the incubator on day 15. Candled last night and things look pretty good. Air cells might be a little small. I lost 5 from this hatch due to a temp spike on day 3 sad.png I emailed the gal I bought them from to let her know my progress and she sent me a dozen more for the cost of shipping. That was very sweet of her to do knowing it wasn't her fault or even the PO but my faulty incubator. I'll be setting those eggs tomorrowDay 15, 7 eggs.

Fire Ant Farm I set 16 Cream Legbar eggs yesterday afternoon. Looks like the shipped eggs (Alohas with some Naked Necks in the mix) will come next week, so the tandem hatches will be a week apart. (Brinsea Octagon), and the second one will be set up tonight (R-Com 20). Cream Legbars lock down on February 7. Aloha NNs lock down on February 16 (at least any that make it to lock down). Gently turning those three times a day now.

Did my candle, 2 blood rings (confirmed by cracking) and one with veins and another with a moving black dot. The rest were all pretty clear, no obvious veining, but nothing saying they were not alive. Down to 13, 8 BSL and 5 EE.

The one with the blood ring I had accidentally put upside down, it was a very round egg. BUT, when I cracked it, I could see eyes on the embryo! Sad, but very cool. The other blood ring was just a ring and no baby. Sorry, I didn't get pics of the dead ones. On another EE, there was a light ring ish thing, but I left it as I was not sure that it was not veins.
The one with definite veining is a EE, the mover is a BSL.

Jessimom 3 shipped SF's and 2 shipped Cochins looked questionable.  Another SF - air cell was in the pointy end.  I put all 6 in lock down in an egg carton, air cell up.  But, 8 SFs and 7 Cochins look good and went in on their sides.  I have 8 of my silkie eggs due to hatch 2/12 and 12 shipped Blue/Splash silkies and 2 shipped Buff Brahma eggs set to hatch 2/20.  I have I have 14 more Buff Brahmas and 7 shipped Biefilder/Cream Legbar cross eggs to set on Friday.  I had just 1 Salmon Favorelle hatch. Gotro17 had such a great hatch, I'm trading her a bunch of silkie eggs for one of her babies to be a buddy to mine!!! I've upped my Temps by 1/2 a degree to see if that helps. I do have 6 of my own silkies set to hatch on the 12th. That will be my test. The bator is full of others, set to hatch the 27th or so.

- ordered a new Dickey incubator for a hatcher
HeatherMarieRUpdate on Muscovy hatch: One has been internally pipped for 48+ hrs. I made a safety hole right above its bill yesterday afternoon. 3 are for sure DIS. One was trying to pip internally yesterday. I'll have to check on that one when I get back home. Two more are still hanging on with no internal pip. One egg from my Muscovy hen went into lockdown yesterday. Hopefully it will pip soon.

Does it look full term? Sorry about the gross picture.

Not quite full term. Not completely feathered, and it looks like the yolk didn't get closed in, either. Day 27 is more than 2 days longer than I would have gone. If they do hatch, they'll most likely not survive to adulthood. Sorry, Jm...    :hugs

PLEASE HELP ME UPDATE THIS!!

IF YOUR NOT ON THE LIST TAG ME IN YOUR POST OR ASK SOMEONE TO TAG ME PLEASE!

 

 

 

Jessimom  I have 6 of my silkie eggs due to hatch 2/12 and 12 shipped Blue/Splash silkies and 2 shipped Buff Brahma eggs set to hatch 2/20.  I have I have 14 more Buff Brahmas and 7 shipped Biefilder/Cream Legbar cross eggs that I set on Friday, to hatch on the 25.   Only 1 sad Salmon Favorelle hatched out of my 20 I locked down.  @Gopro17 gave me 2 Marans to keep it company.  

 

 

 

 

Just curious, I'm  now running my incubator at 100 - 101, since the 99.5 set my eggs SO FAR back.  Am I cooking them?  

 

I've read increased oxygen is good for the eggs.  I have a small 'bator, will an aquarium air bubbler be too much, without heating the air first?

Mom to a BEAUTIFUL little girl, 1 dog, 2 cats, LOTS of fish and an ever growing chicken flock.  Laying hens - 3 RIR, 3 BSL, 3 EE, 2 Delaware, 2 BR and 1 backyard EE mix.  6 wk old babies - 1 NHR, 1 BO (Maybe a Roo), 1 Dominique, 1 BA, 5 EE girls, and 1 EE boy.  Breeding silkies 3 white hens, 1 blue/grey hen, 1 black roo.  Tiny chicks too many to count.
